Corkickle sign

Corkickle is really just a suburb of Whitehaven to the north, the two railway stations being separated only by a tunnel. It has its own quiet request stop, though, which we visited on a warm September morning. The station building, now in private hands:

The entrance to the station's single platform is just to the side of the station building:

I went round to the hill just to the east of the station to get a better look down at the rear of the station building:

Looking south along the line at a section of disused platform:

At the other end there's more unused platform before the train disappears into the tunnel:
